Luv2bake - everyone's posts are doubling and tripling. Something is wrong with the system right now. No worries!

I roll my NFSC a bit thicker 3/8 to 1/2 inch. I push the sticks in from the bottom before cooking; carefully turn over to check back, press just a bit of dough on to cover if needed. I use either Anton74 icing or Marshmallow fondant- I like both. The Ant74 works well to detail the fondant, tho I have had smooshed polka dots- that may be because I don't leave enough dry time, or could be because the icing is not rock hard like regular RI. I usually cut MMF, keep under plastic, then spread cookie with cornsyrup after cool to attach. I have never tried doing it while hot.
I have used lemon flavoring in the dough and in the icing, I have also tried almond. Everyone except my son loves the lemon.

There is a wonderful cinnamon spice cookie recipe on www.karenscookies.net. That is actually my fam's fav. ADD: She also has a few great videos on doing cookies on sticks, and shows different icing techniques to acheive the same design.

Good luck, and have fun!

Caker_Girl - I keep my corn syrup in a squeeze bottle and put little dots of syrup on the cookie.

luv2bake6 - The greasiness really goes away. I noticed that when I bagged my cookies, right after decorating with RBC, that it would smear the bag. So I happen to let them sit out overnight and bagged them the next day. I don't have the smear that way and they don't look greasy.

As far as the box absorbing the grease, I don't know. Doesn't seem the case, because I use and reuse these boxes since I paid $2 a piece for them at the local pizzeria. I line them with aluminum foil each time I use them.

That's amazing. I'm going to try to leave them out the next time i try it. Have you decorated on the RBC with RI? Does it stick? I know that RI starts to break down when introduced to anything greasy but if the grease goes away........

Great idea about the corn syrup in a squeeze bottle! I hate trying to spread it with spatula!
